“I use weaving, sewing, drawing and lapidary to delve into my lived experience of womanhood and relate to the stories of women around me, past and present. The themes that underpin my inspiration, materials and creations relate to resilience. Resilience refers to resourcefulness, endurance, and an ongoing dedication to the many mundane tasks that have been traditionally associated with woman’s work. In particular, the resilience women have shown in their personal craft, work that had to be portable, easy to put down and pick up again, and could be done in the midst of family life.”
